An Indian man had chopped off his index finger after he realized he’d erroneously cast his vote for an alternative political party from the one he made to vote for.
At a now viral video, Pawan Kumar said he wished to vote for a regional party but had been confused by many symbols on the voting machine, which he unwittingly ended up voting to the governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
After he cast his vote Thursday in Bulandshahr in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, his finger was marked with indelible ink. In wrath, he chopped off the finger.
He might be heard in the video:”I liked to vote to its wolf, but I voted for the blossom by mistake.”
